On the last night of Glorieta Christian Writing Conference, I was praying and having some very intimate time with the Lord. The following are the words He laid on my heart that night and I came across them in my journal today. I think they are meant to share, I pray your heart will be touched.
My precious child,
I am here. You are not alone. I have held you in my hands for all of the days of your life. I will move mightily and you will be amazed. Do not fear, do not doubt, trust in me and know that I am God. Be patient, I am working things you will never understand, and I am.
Dear one, turn your heart to me, and remember that I am not against you. I find you in my favor and because of where you are I will be able to move mountains. Do not question me, but allow me to work in my way in my timing.
I saved you from the darkness; I pulled you out of the pit. I have a plan for you. You are mine. Because I love you I am working, though you cannot see it, I am working. Though you doubt I am in this, you must remember that it is because of me that you can do all things. I am your God, you are my child. I AM.
Proclaim me to all, I want you to speak of me, I want you to shout from the rooftops how I have moved mountains for you. I want you to put no other Gods before me, I want you to declare yourself mine, let there be no prideful arrogance in you. Confess your frustrations and worries to me; lay them at my feet and trust me to carry them for you.
I bless you with many gifts and talents; I have a purpose and a plan for this new life I have given you. You may not understand it now, and I know you are very capable, but it is because of me you are capable. Dear child of mine, do you think you are alone? Do you believe I have forsaken you, search your heart and you will find me in ways you have never thought possible. Search your heart, and know what I am doing. Search your heart my child, know that I am creating a new life in you; a life worth living.
